The trail got its start in January, when the Butler County Visitors Bureau chose to highlight nine locally owned doughnut shops to increase travel and visits to the county.

According to a news release, more than 1,700 visitors from 18 states and four countries have taken the challenge and completed all nine stops. Those who complete the trail and collect all nine passport stamps earn a complimentary Donut Trail t-shirt. Donut Trail passports are available for download at the website here or in the shops.

“The Butler County Donut Trail continues to drive incredible visitor numbers into Butler County,” said Mark Hecquet, executive director of the Butler County Visitors Bureau. “As we celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week, we look to highlight the impact tourism has on our community and its businesses large and small.”
